Over 20 England 149/5/No

That is it from this game! Now over to Bristol to find out who takes the T20I series. England were excellent today. They had plans for how they are going to play and executed them well. India on the other hand, did fight well but ended up being second best. The series is turning out to be how it was supposed to, a very exciting one and the excitement will continue on the 8th at 0200 local (0100 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care.
Man of the Match, Alex Hales, says it was a much-needed win for them and he feels good after playing this innings. Admits he had to come up with a plan against Kuldeep as he has not faced him a lot before. Mentions they have good strikers coming all the way till the bottom and they all came good today. Credits the way the bowlers bowled today.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan, says the new ball bowlers set the tone for them upfront. Admits they were very happy with the total they had to chase. Credits the way Alex Hales played and he along with the rest built small partnerships which were very important.
India skipper, Virat Kohli, says he felt this total would have been a challenging one. Credits the way England batted. Reckons 15 runs more would have made a difference. Adds their batting Powerplay was not a good one. Ends by saying they are looking forward to the game in Bristol.
39 was needed from the last 4 and that is when Jonny Bairstow decided to step on the pedal. He hit two towering maximums of Kuldeep Yadav which saw the hosts needing only 23 from the last 3. But two brilliant overs by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav with the latter taking Jonny's wicket saw the English men needing 12 in the last over. However, a biggie and boundary from Hales's bat from the first two balls of Kumar's over settled it.
We have a decider then! Willey did hit the winning runs but it was Hales who was the hero for them. He walks off to a standing ovation by his teammates and he deserves every bit of it. After bowling out India for a decent total. England got off to a flying start as Roy plundered 14 from the first over. At that time, it looked like the hosts would run away with the game but it wasn't to be.
19.4
B Kumar to D Willey, That is it! Willey hits the winning runs! It took just 4 balls for them to score the runs they needed in the last over. Slightly short on middle, Willey rocks back and pulls it through mid-wicket for the winning runs. ENGLAND WIN BY 5 WICKETS AND LEVEL THE SERIES 1-1!
19.3
B Kumar to A Hales, SCORES ARE LEVEL! Kumar bowls it on the pads, Hales flicks it through mid-wicket and gets to the other end.
19.2
B Kumar to A Hales, FOUR! 10 from the first two balls and only two needed now. Another poor ball, length and down the leg side. Hales helps it on its way fine down the leg side and the ball races to the fence.
19.1
B Kumar to A Hales, SIX! Right in the slot and Hales has probably landed the knockout punch here. First boundary that Kumar has conceded. It is full and on middle, Hales clears his front leg and clears the straight boundary. He crosses his fifty with that, his 8th in the T20Is. His job is not done yet. 6 more needed from 5 balls.

18.4
U Yadav to A Hales, NOT OUT! But still no boundary! Another yorker on off, Hales does really well to jam it out through backward point. There is a man in the deep who runs to his left and collect it. The batsmen go for a second as the fielder fires a throw to the keeper. Dhoni collects it and whips the bails off. The players appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays show that Dhoni dislodged the bails with his hands. Two runs added.
A run out appeal has been referred. Hales is the man in question but he does not seem confident.
18.3
U Yadav to A Hales, Wow! Is this is the same Umesh Yadav who I saw in the Indian T20 League. NO. Another yorker outside off, Hales tries to clip but misses. Dhoni has a shy at his end but misses.

17.6
B Kumar to D Willey, He does! 20 needed from the last 2. Just 3 from this over. Lovely stuff. Another yorker on the pads. Willey fails to dig it out. The ball brushes the pads and goes towards square leg for a leg bye. Kumar has given just 7 in his 3 overs.
17.5
B Kumar to D Willey, Excellent from Kumar! He follows Willey as he makes room and bowls it full on his pads. David tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. Can Kumar end it well? He needs to if India are to stay in this game.

A short ball on the body of the batsman. Bairstow swivels and pulls it towards Kuldeep Yadav at fine leg. He comes running in and takes a sliding catch. Jonny though walks back after doing his job. 23 more needed in 17.
